A reader wonders when—if ever—her boyfriend will finally break the "I love you" sound barrier.
"I've been with my boyfriend for 6 months. We spend a lot of time together (we see each other every night, at least) and regularly have deep talks about our lives," the reader writes in. "However, he still he hasn't said that he loves me and I'm starting to wonder. He's never introduced me to his family (who live out-of-state), but he's introduced me to all of his close friends as his girlfriend. He does show affection for me in different ways, but I can't tell if it's love or he's just a nice guy and knows how to treat a lady. How can I tell if a guy loves me? How do men show their love?"
